Always a ruling presence on stage,”The Dutchess” no doubt felt like a queen on her wedding day. From actor Mario Lopez, who fondly remembers Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson bestowing his first kiss, to will.i.am and Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas, the bride’s past and present harmoniously mingled on the grounds of the Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu, California before the ceremony commenced on January 10, 2009.
Magnolia trees adorned with white roses perfumed the air as the the singer began her walk toward the groom, actor Josh Duhamel. According to US magazine online, the train of her Dolce & Gabbana gown trailed behind her as she strolled in a corseted creation draped in a overlay of tulle past family, friends and 10 bridesmaids dressed in black silhouettes from the same designers. A 14-piece orchestra provided a soundtrack to the moment as the groom slipped a diamond wedding band from H. Stern jewelers on his bride’s finger to accompany her 4-carat, brilliant cut diamond engagement ring. In turn, the groom received an 18K white gold band.
Following the nuptials, guests gathered inside tents erected on the property for the reception.
